ACLU Sues Boeing Subsidiary For Participating In Extraordinary Rendition

ACLU:

The American Civil Liberties Union today filed a federal lawsuit against Jeppesen Dataplan, Inc., a subsidiary of Boeing Company, on behalf of three victims of the United States government's unlawful "extraordinary rendition" program. The lawsuit charges that Jeppesen knowingly provided direct flight services to the CIA that enabled the clandestine transportation of Binyam Mohamed, Abou Elkassim Britel and Ahmed Agiza to secret overseas locations where they were subjected to torture and other forms of cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment.

In addition to filing this lawsuit on behalf of these three--two of whom remain imprisoned--the ACLU has also filed a petition for Supreme Court review of the Khaled El-Masri. You think the Roberts court will agree to hear it?
